An ex-Al Jazeera journalist. An American diplomat. An African Pope.
America is under threat as full-scale civil war rages in Syria. A bomb has exploded in Manhattan and all roads lead to Damascus. The President must act.
A peace-seeking, African Pope is elected to the Vatican and an Evangelical third-party President is in power in the US.
With nuclear war looming, will the new Pope intervene directly in American foreign policy in Syria or will he accede to the demands of Washington?
Riddled with international intrigue, Tom Dulack’s astonishingly prescient play imagines a world ripped from today’s headlines.
“A SERIOUS AND SATISFYING POLITICAL THRILLER.”
–The New York Times
“WONDERFULLY IMAGINATIVE – IT WILL KEEP YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT!”
“A MARVEL! THE SCRIPT REALLY SINGS!”
